Born from an unparalleled blood line, the new Scrambler 1200 line-up can trace its roots directly back to the original Scrambler scene in the early 1960’s, where Triumph played a pivotal role and set the template for what made a scrambler great.

Building the leading bikes of the day, stripped back with straight-through ‘twin pipes’ fitted high or low sling and chopped off – Triumphs were the original and real desert sleds. These inspired the world’s first production scramblers, with the Bonneville T-120TT, T120C and the TR6’C’. And these were the bikes that Steve McQueen took to the desert, that Bud Ekins raced and won on, in the dirt, and that competed the most challenging desert races of all time - the Baja 1000.

In 2006, with the launch of the very first ‘modern era’ Scrambler, Triumph again delivered the genesis of a new category. This triggered the world of Scramblers we see today and a whole new global fan base, from urban riders to movie stars, all in love with that iconic Triumph scrambler style and timeless silhouette.


The Scrambler 1200 XE, which takes the specification to the highest level and its off-road capabilities and scrambling credentials to the very top of the motorcycling world.


The new Scrambler delivers category leading torque and a dedicated ‘scrambler tune’ courtesy of the latest generation Bonneville High Power 1200cc engine. The charismatic 270° firing interval ensures a smooth, linear power delivery from the slick six-speed gearbox.

Evolved specifically for the Scrambler, the 1200 engine provides 90 PS @ 7,400 rpm, which is 12.5% more power than the Bonneville T120 and an incredible 38% more than the 2019 Street Scrambler.

Additionally, the Scrambler 1200 power plant is tuned to deliver ‘high torque’ off-road and on, low down and across the mid-range, with peak torque of 110Nm at a low 3,950 rpm. This is also greater that the Street Scrambler by 37.5%.

Delivering the Scrambler soundtrack is a beautifully crafted twin high level exhaust system with stainless steel headers and brushed stainless steel silencers for a deep punchy scrambler sound.

Just like all the new generation Bonneville’s, the Scrambler 1200 engine delivers leading modern classic capability with ride-by-wire, as well as a sensitively incorporated liquid cooling system for enhanced performance and cleaner, more fuel-efficient riding.

The Scrambler 1200 model also features a high first major service interval of
10,000 miles/16,000 km.


Taking the capability to the highest level, the Scrambler 1200 features a class-leading standard of rider focused technology, including:

2nd generation TFT instruments
Both models feature Triumph’s latest generation full-colour TFT instruments,
with a stylish design and two information layout design themes that can be personalised. This includes an all-new feature that allows the rider to update
the start-up screen message with their name.

Up to 6 riding modes, including ‘Off-Road Pro’
The Scrambler 1200 XE features Road, Rain, Off-Road, Sport and Rider-configurable riding modes which adjust the throttle response, ABS settings and traction control setting to suit rider preference and riding conditions.

On top of these 5 modes, the Scrambler 1200 XE also features the ‘Off-Road Pro’ mode, which delivers our most off-road focused set up for advanced adventure riding and scrambling. The ‘Off-Road Pro’ mode turns ABS and traction control off and uses the ‘Off-Road’ throttle map.

Optimised Cornering ABS – supported by an IMU            

Exclusive to the Scrambler XE is the Optimised Cornering ABS, fitted as standard.
This maintains the optimum braking performance, whatever the lean angle.

Optimised Cornering Traction Control – supported by an IMU

The Scrambler 1200 XE also features Optimised Cornering Traction Control as standard, which automatically adapts the level of traction control depending on the riding conditions. This maintains the optimum level of traction control for the lean angle of the bike.

IMU – Inertial Measurement Unit

An advanced Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), developed in partnership with Continental, supports the optimum function of the Optimised Cornering ABS and Traction Control on the Scrambler 1200 XE. This takes constant measurements of roll, pitch, yaw, lean angle and acceleration rates, responding with appropriate active safety features.

All LED lighting with *DRL headlight

The Scrambler 1200 XE comes with all LED lighting, including 5-inch headlight, tail light with new more attractive diffused opacity detailing, and indicators (in applicable markets).

The headlight also incorporates LED Daytime Running Lights (*in applicable markets) which provides excellent visibility and a distinctive light profile.

Illuminated backlit switches
The switches on both Scrambler models are backlit from LEDs housed inside
the switch cubes, enhancing rider interaction and improving control by giving
a soft glow in all lighting conditions.

Torque assist clutch
Designed to reduce clutch lever effort for the rider, bringing a lighter touch and feel to the clutch and making it easier to ride, and for longer.

Keyless ignition
Triumph’s keyless ignition system is fitted as standard. The system recognises the proximity of the keyless fob and then enables ignition via the switch cube mounted start button. There is also the ability to disable the key’s wireless transmission function at the touch of a button for even greater security.

Heated grips
Heated grips are also fitted as standard to the Scrambler 1200 XE.. These are neatly integrated with a button on the left-hand grip providing greater rider comfort, with two modes.

Cruise control
Electronic cruise control is fitted as standard to the Scrambler. This is
a single button system fitted into the left-hand switch cube. This feature can be easily accessed while riding for maximum convenience and safety.

USB charging
The new Scrambler features a 5 vault USB power socket for charging personal equipment. This is integrated into a new foam lined storage box under the seat.

World’s first integrated GoPro control system

A world’s first for any motorcycle – Triumph introduces an integrated GoPro control system, facilitating GoPro camera operation, which is facilitated by an accessory fitted connectivity Bluetooth module.

The connection and control are displayed on the TFT instruments, enabling
intuitive video and photo operation via the switchgear.

Turn-by-turn navigation system
Another Triumph first comes with the introduction of an integrated turn-by-turn navigation system powered by Google™ – their first motorcycle manufacturer partnership. The navigation system is facilitated through an accessory fitted Bluetooth connectivity module.
Once the rider has selected the route on the Triumph app and set-off, the instruments present turn symbols on the screen using simple graphic icons.
With this system, the rider has at their disposal a navigation system, a route-planner, their destination and points of interest such as hotels, petrol
stations and restaurants.

Triumph app

For iOS and Android phones, riders can download for free the all new Triumph app, which delivers the connected navigation function. The navigation, route planner, destination and points of interest (hotels, fuel, restaurants etc.) are all controlled by the rider through this app.

Integrated phone and music operation

The new Scrambler 1200 XE features full Bluetooth phone integration, with clear display on the colour TFT instruments, and intuitive phone operation via the switchgear, allowing the rider to select music, control the volume and take calls.
This is facilitated through an accessory fitted connectivity Bluetooth module.


With a unique Öhlins collaboration, plus a dedicated new Scrambler chassis tailored for focused off-road capability and comfortable rider ergonomics, the new Scrambler 1200s have been developed to deliver a first-in-class dual purpose ‘classic and adventure’ capability.

The Scrambler 1200 XE features totally unique new fully-adjustable twin-spring Öhlins rear suspension units that deliver category leading wheel travel and suspension capability, for amazing off-road capability and ground clearance.

The extreme off-road XE delivers 250mm wheel travel It is equipped with piggy-back reservoirs.
